University of Baltimore Law Review


The fourth amendment to the United States Constitution proscribes "unreasonable searches and seizures" and requires that warrants be issued only upon probable cause. There is no distinction drawn between an administrative inspection and a criminal search. Yet, a different treatment has evolved in Supreme Court decisions on these two classifications of searches. This Comment addresses Maryland's warrantless administrative inspection laws in light of the standards that the Court has applied to similar enactments.
